The wounded are taken to a local hospital in Pakistan near the Afghan Border, after a bomb exploded in a market killing five civilians and wounding ten others. Government officials say a suicide bomber blew himself up in a busy restaurant in Pakistan's Bajaur tribal region on the Afghan border. Pakistan has seen a surge in militant violence since al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden was killed in a U.S. raid on May 2. Pakistani Taliban militants allied with al Qaeda have vowed to avenge bin Laden's killing. On Thursday, a suicide car bomber killed 27 people in an attack outside a police station in the northwestern city of Hangu. Early this week, Taliban militants raided a heavily guarded naval base in the southern city of Karachi. Ten military personnel were killed and two aircraft were destroyed in the attack.
